Santee, California Speed Traps
During the weekday mornings when taking my daughter to Santana HS I would say every week there are police outside of there police cars w/radars. They are usually between cars on Carreta and also CHP are on Second St. w/radars. The CHP are usually standing outside the school near the entry to the back parking lot.
CHP cruiser waits on the Grossmonet College onramp to northbound 125, headed down hill to Mission Gorge. I see one CHP, sometimes two almost every thu and fri that I take this exit during the mid afternoon.
CHP will often wait at bottom of Rte-52 (near Mast Blvd exit) East or Westbound. Trap is located at the center of the "Bowl" formed, so traffic going either way is downhill, steep downhil. You pick up some extra speed, they pick up a few bucks. There are plenty of blind construction turnoffs and turns for many CHP to hide. BEWARE!
As you go downhill from San Diego into Santee through Mission Trails Park. Sherrif likes to be in the mobile home park entrance. I have only seen them during am rush hour.
Cops love to hide in the driveway to the school and adjacent park and clock motorists as they pass by, especially in the Eastbound direction. I have also seen them writing citations at Medina and Pebble Beach roads for red light infringements. Motorists beware!
